We tested the Powercolor X800GT against a Leadtek Winfast PX 6600GT. This is
largely due to the fact that X800GT is targeted at the exact same buyers as
Nvidia’s Geforce 6600GT, in terms of price and performance. While our 6600GT
operates at a slightly higher clock speed of 500MHz/1000MHz compared to this
X800GT at 475MHz/980MHz, let’s see how the X800GT hold up against the competition.
